Whatever you spend the most of your time trying to accomplish (80 percent) is most beneficial and meaningful to you. Leaving you with 20 percent of the time used to eliminate nuisances. Begin with: What can you do today? What can you do next week? What can you do next month? So use your time wisely.
Your mindset plays a major role in what you accomplish. Your attitude has to be set up in such a way that no matter what comes your way, you stay committed to your plan of action to make your life better. It’s okay to dream, but in order to grow and experience the personal transformation that you seek, you have to be firm and intentional with your effort and measure your progress with integrity.
Quitting is not an option, and you will find the beauty in working on yourself and getting real with who you are and what you represent while making personal adjustments. This takes prioritizing your time to prevent spending too much time on one thing and not getting any other tasks done. There are several ways people measure progress based on the 80/20 Rule, but you can also begin to set three to five tasks to accomplish per day that lead into a much longer list of things to do.
There have been two times in my life where I ventured into multi-level marketing (MLM), but the most valuable experience came the second time around. I acquired the skill of blocking my time and creating a short list of tasks to focus on one day at a time. The term “work your business” in an hour a day was beneficial when you were following up on leads and engaging with your audience.
That is a practice you can adopt, which will make getting things done in a more timely manner. When setting a small list, you designate a time out of the day to work on each task. For example, your Top 5 of the day might include quiet-time at the start your day when you read a devotional and pray to get your mind right for the tasks at hand.
The second item on your list could include a social media post idea centered around your interest in food, family, fun, fashion, or faith. The 5 F’s, as we learned because when you look at your audience for your business or people that you network with in your career, something is guaranteed to catch their attention.
The third task would include following up with leads depending on your engagement with your audience and network since they may have questions that need answers, and you are the expert. The fourth task would be a Power Hour when you work on your business researching what the competition is doing, posting a business testimonial, or updating your back office and planning posts for the next day, week, or month. In that one hour, you will be surprised at how much work you can get done as you block out all distractions. Nothing but the focus for that allotted time is what you work on.
